I welcomed 2014 in Montpellier, France. I was there for one year finishing my studies,the time that I now call “the best year of my life”.
The beginning of the year started with my 22nd birthday celebration, a night with my amazing group of friends that I won’t forget. I never make too much of a big deal out of my birthday, but this year I thought why not? I’m in France, let’s make it a good one.
In February, I went to a concert by my favourite rapper and man candy Drake! I screamed my lungs out, sang all his songs while being just a few meters away from him. It was pretty much a dream come true, I might have cried a little too.
In March, I was lucky enough to have my family come visit me. We travelled to Madrid and Paris together. Having them be a part of my year in France is something I will always be grateful for.
When May came around it was time to start preparing for exams. And worse than that , prepare to say goodbye to all the great friends I made in Montpe. To have a proper farewell,we took a few trips to nearby towns with our group of friends. We had such a fun time during the road trips, sightseeing, cooking dinners and sipping on wine by night.
On the upside, 2 close friends came to visit me in Montpellier, I hadn’t seen them in 2 years and it was like time never passed. They were the perfect dates for my university’s end of the year gala.
June was the month I couldn’t wait for. Even though it was super sad to leave Montpellier, and with that my student life, I was excited for the trips that were to come. I travelled to Turkey with another close friend that I hadn’t seen in a while and we had a blast. And I got to go with my girls to Greece, one of my dream destinations.
In July I finally returned back home to spend time with my family, rest, and soak in everything that just happened in my life before embarking in my next adventure.
In September, I took of to come to China. Since then I have been studying chinese, and working as an english teacher. It’s been an interesting experience, and I’m definitely learning a lot about chinese people and how things work in this country.
2014 was a pretty sweet year, I feel like I accomplished a lot and one of the most important things was the fact that I graduated. Even with a little detour along the way when I took a semester off to go on a working holiday to Canada, everything worked out the way I wanted. These past 4 years went by way too fast though. Bye bye university! I miss you already!
For this new year, I will still be in China for half of it. The other half I haven’t figured it out yet, but I’m sure it’s going to be great 🙂 I will be welcoming the new year with a trip to Thailand by the end of January. A little birthday present from me to me :p
Happy New Year :)!!
